First Whiplash, Now Selma

Director Ava DuVernay’s 2014 film Selma is coming to a screen near you. David Oyelowo stars as Martin Luther King at the time of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches. Mid sixties Alabama, institutional racism, the ensuing struggle led to the Voting Rights Act. DuVernay’s Oscar-tipped film features a soundtrack composed by Jason Moran.
Newcastle’s Star and Shadow Cinema has pulled-off a coup in securing a preview screening on Saturday January 31 (2:00pm). The film, preceded by speakers, is a fundraiser for Journey to Justice. Newcastle’s other independent film house, the Tyneside Cinema (currently showing Whiplash), will screen Selma from Friday February 6.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
